Busy Day Cake

(My very favorite cake)

1/3 C shortening

1 3/4 C sifted cake flour

3/4 C sugar

2 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 egg

3/4 C milk

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Place shortening in mixing bowl. Sift in dry ingredients. Add egg and half the milk. Mix until flour is moistened. Beat with electric mixer for 2 minutes at medium speed. Add remaining milk and vanilla; beat 2 minutes longer.

Bake in greased and lightly floured 8x8 pan. 375 degrees about 25 minutes or until done. Test with toothpick.
